Canadian firm to open U.S. subsidiary here



By SCOTT BUTKI / Staff Writer


Jager Industries, a Canadian firm that manufactures engineered wood products and other building materials, has announced it will establish its U.S. subsidiary in Washington County.

The news will mean 10 new jobs, said Tim Troxell, assistant director of the Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission.

The company decided to move to the Hagerstown area after reading about it on a real estate site on the Internet, Troxell said.

"Jager first contacted me several months ago after learning of the Hagerstown area on the Internet," said Sydney Machat of Long & Foster Commercial Properties Online. "It is great to see international firms choosing sites in Washington County."

McCleary & Earley of Williamsport are constructing Jager's building on Business Parkway in the Huyetts Business Park off Md. 63 near its intersection with Interstate 70. The building will be complete in November.

Light manufacturing work will be done at the building, which will also serve as a technical support and distribution center.

The company is at a temporary site on Conococheague Street in Williamsport, Troxell said.

David Covington, company senior vice president, would not provide a salary range for the jobs.
